WORDS FROM A CLIENT…

“Thank you very much for the food today.  I brought it home to my elderly parents and they were overwhelmed and could not believe how much was received! Thank you for making the Drive-Thru painless for everyone.  It was quick and easy.  Thank you to the volunteers who are helping the Pantry at this time, much respect to them!”

2020 Annual Appeal

“When my son David told me he was hungry, it broke my heart.”

                  Your support gives hope to our neighbors in need.

Daniel is a Veteran, a single dad and a dedicated and loving father.  He works on the line at a local manufacturing company.

“I’ve always been a hard worker and never pictured myself going to a food pantry, but rent, utility bills and insurance have all increased so much and money for groceries has been limited.  I’ve been doing the best I can but we eat a lot of noodles, soup and peanut butter sandwiches.  When my son David told me he was hungry, it broke my heart.  I saw a brochure about the Pantry at the grocery store and knew what I needed to do.  I am so thankful for Loaves & Fishes, they’ve given me food and hope!”
                                    Sincerely, Daniel

Several local businesses have pledged $11,750 in matching funds.  Your gift will be doubled if you donate by April 30th!

  THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Great Food Walk is Virtual this year

36th ANNUAL GREAT FOOD WALK to benefit Loaves & Fishes and Sharing, Inc.

WALK…DONATE…SPONSOR… to help end hunger locally!

Walk, run or stroll and enjoy on a day and on a safe route of your choosing.

With painstaking consideration, Nashoba GFW, Inc. have decided to change the Great Food Walk from a crowded event on April 10th to a virtual walk where we can all walk individually or in small groups between now and April 10th.

In the spirit of community action to help address the needs of our neighbors – especially now in this moment – they are making an appeal for you to take up either a virtual walk or a walk on your own time, where you like, between now and Friday, April 10th. Please choose a safe place to walk.

With this energy harnessed we can all still make a difference. Your and your sponsors’ donations are most welcome! You can make donations here online or by mailing your donation with your virtual walk sheet.

We extend a gracious thank you for your participation and generosity!
